The Inventory Window is used to manage inventory. The window is split into two parts: the left half is the catalog tree view which lists the products in the catalog, and the right half consists of tabs that give different views of the product.

"Manage inventory with ease and accuracy."

The catalog tree view shows the products in your catalog and includes options for adding, sorting or removing catalog items. The name tree view is used to describe the window control used to organize the products. As nodes are expanded in the tree view, the choice of products narrows, until the final "leaf" node denotes an individual product. Select a product and the tabbed views to the right will activate.

The tabbed views show different product details and appears when you select a catalog item in the catalog tree view. The separate tabs each perform a different inventory function.

To access the Inventory window, select the Inventory button on the main toolbar. Alternately, select Action | Inventory from the menu bar, or press the F8 key.


Properties

Attributes Tab
Use this tab to edit a product's attributes. PlantX.net allows you to individualize each product by assigning any number of attributes. Use the minimal number of attributes need to describe two different products. Usually the plants differ on price; use the attributes to describe why they are different. Typically the pot size or plant size are used to distinguish why the same plant material has two different prices. Attributes can also be very specific, i.e. Plastic Pot #1 or Wood Sq. Box 3.
Supplies & Orders Tab
Use this tab to manage your supplies and see all of the customers that have ordered the product, all in one place. This is probably the most valuable tab in PlantX.net, as it shows you the supply and demand at a glance.
Prices Tab
Use this tab to manage the various catalog prices for an inventory item. Use the Member Settings Pricing Tab to create the pricing categories. See the Customers Reference for more information on setting customer pricing.
Retail Info Tab
PlantX.net records the retail price for each product that is required by the customer. You can enter and save retail prices as you add items to an order, or use the Retail Prices tab of the Customers window, or use the Retail Info tab of the Inventory window.
Message/Warning Tab
Use this view to attach messages and warnings to supply reports for the catalog item.
Misc Tab
Use this view to input UPC Code, SKU, Load Factor, Tag Color, Optional Sort and Revenue Account for the catalog item. Select a Catalog Item Type from the Type drop-down menu.
See Catalog Item Types for more information.
